Shehbaz Sharif took the second spot after speaking for an hour and 57 minutes, and was followed by Khawaja Mohammad Asif, who talked for an hour and 27 minutes. 

Fifth and sixth place went to the PML-Ahsan N’s Iqbal Chaudhary and the PPPP’s Shazia Marri, respectively.

The Pildat comparison research also examines how Imran Khan’s three years and eight months as prime minister of the National Assembly differed from that of the 14th National Assembly within a similar time frame. 

14th National Assembly

In comparison to the 14th National Assembly, which passed 125 bills in its first four years, the 15th National Assembly passed 155 bills in its four-year span. In the fourth year of the assembly, 32 government legislation were introduced, up from 31 in the third year, but only 46 private member bills were introduced, down from 74 in the previous year. 

During the four years of the 15th National Assembly, there was an excessive reliance on passing ordinances, as seen by the seventy-four ordinances that were placed before the assembly. The number of ordinances the government put before the house in its fourth year compared to its third year was slightly less. 

In the fourth year, the assembly received as few as 16 ordinances, down from 20 in the third year—a 20 percent decline.
